Abstract: Based on the European standards, an odor concentration can be expressed as a concentration of the European Reference Odour Mass (EROM). Thus, a very accurate odor concentration measurement must be able to be expressed as a continuous value. By comparing the very accurate odor concentration measurement and the odor concentration measurement by the standard method, a mathematical model is developed to describe the effect of background odor from manufactured odor sampling bags or residual sample odors from a used sample bag on the samples odor concentration measurement at different confident levels.
